Samsung Gear Sport review: specs and price

If you’re a fan of Samsung Health and enjoy the sleekness of Samsung smartwatches then you’ll enjoy the mid-level Gear Sport. Whereas the Samsung Galaxy Watch is more of a luxury smartwatch, the Gear Sport is a rugged smartwatch designed for active users.

The Samsung Gear Sport acts mostly as a smartwatch for men in design, coming only in two color choices: black and bright blue. However, Samsung made upgrades from the previous rugged smartwatch and included a Super AMOLED screen that’s more compact than its predecessors, measuring 44.6 x 42.9 x 11.6 mm.
